I emailed my Meditation Instructor a copy of yesterday's blog post. He offered a few good suggestions.
He asked why I did my Morning Pages first. He also asked if it helped, or possibly hindered, my meditation practice. I do my Morning Pages first, in part, because I (think) that's what Julia Cameron suggested, and second: I get to drink my first cup of coffee while doing so.
It was seeming, too, that the writing was helping me get more chatter out of my head prior to sitting. However, last Wednesday good ol' Sarah P. settled herself in pretty well during my sitting practice, but she did not appear on one sheet of my Morning Pages.
Tomorrow morning I'm going to try something different. Tomorrow I am going to walk my dog first, drink my coffee (I definitely need to drink my coffee), meditate and then write. Just to see what happens.
